The Nevada Senate approved the Las Vegas stadium deal by a vote of 16-5 on Tuesday, taking another step toward luring the Raiders out of Oakland.

The next step for the proposed stadium to become a reality is for the State General Assembly, which reconvenes Thursday, to pass the measure. The $1.9 billion stadium project hinges on the approval of public funding. A two-thirds vote is needed in the General Assembly to push the project forward.

“If the NFL and the Raiders come because we build the stadium, and we won’t build the stadium unless they’re coming, for the first time in modern history the National Football League has signaled a willingness to allow the team to transfer,” Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts, told the Las Vegas Review Journal on Monday.
